Faye Hatfield Obituary

Faye Mayhorn Hatfield, 92, of Wilmington, Delaware, peacefully passed away in the comfort of her home with family on Sunday, November 12, 2023.  Born in Freeburn, Kentucky on December 15, 1930, she was the last surviving of fifteen children of the late Melvin Mayhorn and Elizabeth Eldridge Mayhorn.

Her husband, Oscar Hatfield, passed away on May 24, 1984.  In addition, she was predeceased by two grandchildren and a great grandchild.

Faye will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: David Hatfield (Jane), Diane Hatfield-Zencak (Raoul), Linda Blankenship (Joe), Kimberly Bolen and Danny Joe Hatfield; eight grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.
